    1. Using Visual Aids Effectively “Where’s the darn flipchart in this room?”

    2. Why Use Visual Aids? • They save time and add interest • They improve listener understanding • They improve listener retention • They allow for different learning styles

    3. Verbal and Visual Recall

    4. Types of Visual Aids:Advantages and Disadvantages • Overhead Transparencies • Slides • Flip Charts and Posters • Objects and Models • Handouts • Whiteboards and Chalkboards • Computer Assisted Audiovisuals

    5. Guidelines for VAs • The VA should never become the REASON for the speech • The VA should be appropriate for the length and format of the speech • Know what technology will be available to you • The higher the tech, the more you need redundancy and backup--Burnett’s rule of VA

    6. Size Matters • This is a 20 point font • This is a 32 point font • This is a 48 point font • This is a 60 point font • This is a 72 point f

    7. Type Fonts • Serif fonts versus Sans Serif fonts • This is a sans serif font--This is Arial • This is a font with serifs--This is Times New Roman

    8. More On Fonts • Please see the overhead projector for more on fonts

    9. Additional Guidelines for Text • Use only 4-6 lines of text per VA • Use phrases, not full sentences • Use Upper Case and Lower Case for ease of reading • Leave the same space at the top of a VA • Limit lines to no more than 40 characters

    10. Use Clip Art to Keep Interest • The text can be placed here on the left, and the picture on the right

    11. How Not to Use PowerPoint • In most situations, PowerPoint should NOT be used as a running outline as we do here! • Use PowerPoint to generate illustrations of particular data points or pieces of support • Slides are easily printed to overheads using specialized inkjet and laser jet overheads (print on the rough side!) • Kinko’s (and others) can do the job!
